The Nuvi 3597LMTHD continues to refine Garmin's brand of navigation with premium design and one of the best interfaces in the business.
The Garmin Nuvi 3490 LMT packs every trick in Garmin's book into an ultra-thin chassis, but the high MSRP will deter some.
With its improved interface, the Garmin Nuvi 2495LMT (Advanced Series) is as easy to use as earlier models, while offering a good blend of advanced features at a reasonable price.
Garmin's formula for entry-level GPS devices doesn't change much with the new Nuvi 50, but small tweaks, a lower price, and a massive screen enhance value.
The Garmin GTU 10 is a good tool for tracking and finding lost things, but its positioning accuracy is dependent on the geography around it and the frequency of its reporting.
Anyone who wants a reliable and simple navigation device with a bit more screen real estate won't be disappointed by the Garmin Nuvi 1490T.
The Garmin Nuvi 3790T is an exceptional portable navigation device with just the right blend of form and function.
The Garmin Nuvi 295W is a solid point-to-point GPS navigator with a few neat tricks that on-foot navigators may appreciate, but its secondary camera and Wi-Fi-connected features just aren't very useful from behind the wheel.
With powerful and customizable navigation hardware and software, the RightWay 550 is a great GPS device for advanced users. Those looking for an easy-to-use GPS device, however, will probably want to look elsewhere.
The TomTom XL 350 and XXL 550 series of GPS devices represent a marked improvement over the previous generation, keeping its great form factor while streamlining its software.
